Wellington Garden Group will once again be opening local gardens for viewing by the public with six properties including four country gardens featuring as part of "Historical Homes and their Gardens". This year sees a special focus on Wellington's 200 year history this year with all homes featured being built in the 1800 and 1900s (please note that the public will not be able to walk through homes only the gardens). Highlights of the four country gardens include: 'Nyrang' built of bluestone c.1898 and will feature Sue and Paul's Rustic Garden Art. 'Keston' (pictured) c.1897 featuring Relic Garden Art by Cherie Hughes. 'Towri' c.1880s will feature art work by Jan Payne throughout their Country Rose Garden. 'Narrawa' c.1908 is a non-gardeners garden surrounded by a parkland of trees and sculptures. While Wellington's streets will also come alive as Terry Frost and Noel and Helen Grimes open their stunning gardens including plant stalls. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Wellington Public School, St Mary's Catholic School, Wellington High School and Wellington Christian School. The Wellington Historical Society will also be opening The Oxley Museum for visitor's throughout the day and entry will be a gold coin donation.
